New Release Tuesday – Smuggler and Dragon Ball Z

Happy New Release Tuesday! Today we’ve got two anime Blu-ray and DVD releases from both FUNimation and Giant Ape (our Live Action label). But, let’s start with anime, shall we?


Dragon Ball Z Season 3 is now available on Blu-ray. Check out that epic cover art!




All seven Namekian Dragon Balls have been assembled, and the dragon Porunga has been summoned! Goku and his loyal friends must stop Frieza from making his wish for immortality. To defeat this monstrous foe – a Super Saiyan must emerge!


Make room on your shelves because the Dragon Ball Z Season Sets are finally on Blu-ray! We embarked on a frame-by-frame restoration process to remove any blemishes, tape marks, and foreign bodies that might have tarnished your viewing experience.  All three audio tracks have been re-mastered in the interest of noise reduction and superior sound quality. The bolder, more vibrant color of this ultimate Dragon Ball Z release closely mirrors the visual aesthetics of today’s entertainment. Lastly, we undertook a precise shot-by-shot reframing of the entire series to create a modern HD widescreen presentation of this legendary fan favorite!

Now, over on our Live Action side, Giant Ape has released Smuggler on DVD today! See the movie that Twitch Film calls “Brutal. Graphic. Stylistic. Extreme.” It’s a dirty job, but someone’s gotta do it. And besides, body bags pay the bills.




Kinuta’s life is at a crossroads. His acting career hit the skids, and his gambling addiction just landed him in major debt to the mob. Bad guys with itchy trigger fingers want to put the kid six feet under until a mistress of the underworld scores him a job smuggling corpses. But death is nasty business, and Kinuta soon crosses paths with Vertebrae and Viscera, an insanely deadly duo of ninja assassins.  These lethal psychopaths kill everyone in sight, drawing the vengeful wrath of a demented Mafioso. What ensues is cinematic sequence almost too extreme for American audiences. Kinuta accidentally springs Vertebrae from a harrowing death march, landing himself in the unenviable position of having to impersonate a psycho killer – or end up dead. This heinous game of cat and mouse becomes a splatterfest of guts and gore as a diaper-clad madman puts Kinuta’s will to live to the ultimate test!
